Danish Global Transport and Logistics Provider, DSV recently announced that DSV Indonesia have opened a new office Medan, Sumatra on 5th November 2018. The new office will manage all operational responsibility for clients in the region and shipments in and out of Sumatra.
This is the sixth DSV office in Indonesia and this strategic location is perfect for winning new business due to its proximity to both an international airport and several seaports.
Managing Director for DSV Air & Sea, Indonesia, Christian Schindler said about the new office, “An office in Medan brings us much closer to the market and to customers. Many industries export large volumes from here, giving us a good basis for growing the pipeline and for future growth through increased local commercial efforts and in collaboration with our global DSV network.”
The large island of Sumatra is home to some of Indonesia’s richest oil fields and a majority of the country’s palm oil plantations are located on there. Along with palm oil pulp and paper production is a dominant industry, while most of Indonesia’s rubber, coffee, tobacco, pepper, tea, pineapple and betel nut finished products are exported from Sumatra to all four corners of the earth.
Mr. Schindler continued, “Some of DSV Indonesia’s existing customers already export products such as tires, rubber, latex gloves, tissue paper, pineapple and raw material for soap. But the customers are also importing chemicals for production or machines and spare parts for processing equipment of said commodities. So, we already have the knowledge to handle this type of customers and now we are closer to them as well.”
